We visited with nephew and niece and 3 children age 2, 5 and 6. Ideal for everyone! They loved feeding the animals and the ride in the trailer being towed by tractor. Enjoyed bouncy rides and go karts etc. I think older children (over 12's) would not enjoy it so much. Long queues for food and drink though

The kids loved it and there was plenty to do for the grown ups as well. Best suited for a summer day do that you can explore all the activities. Some attractions require paying extra for but these are more of an extra rather than an essential

On a sunny day this will be a great place to take your children or grand children. Raining when we were there. Plenty to do, feeding animals tractor rides etc the sort of stuff you would expect at a place like this. The is decent eating at a fair price. well worth a visit

Great price for a great day out. Kids really enjoyed themselves. 8 year old loved meeting and learning about Fudge the pony & Merlin the llama, 3 year old loved bottle feeding the kid goats. Tractor ride is better when the driver interacts with people and puts on more of a show but it was still fantastic. Lovely friendly staff... More

I haven't been to many better places in the world for kids. If you go on a weekday it's absolutely deserted which was excellent. There are too many things to mention and for the price you honestly can't go wrong. We'll be back :)
